Chief Keef has a serious case of ’90s nostalgia, and a high-priced way of dealing with it … because the rapper just threw down a ton of cash to turn his home into a real-life comic strip.
We’re told Chief reached out to Idiot Box Art owners Emily Bright and Tamara Martin over the weekend to purchase a bunch of art inspired by ’90s TV shows — specifically cartoons. The collection is an homage to “The Simpsons,” “The Smurfs” and “Rugrats” … and it’s valued at $ 40k.
As you can see, Keef is hanging up some of the new art in his son’s room … and we’re told his daughter’s room is getting decked out too.
All the works are made of hand-cut wood, covered with acrylic paint and finished with a coat of resin. The pieces range in size from 2 to 15 feet high.
We’re told Chief also commissioned a few cartoon versions of himself because … why not?
He dropped a bundle, but check out our gallery … won’t cost you a dime.
Tekashi69 might have way more legal woes on the horizon than the full plate he’s already dealing with, ’cause the feds are looking into the Chief Keef shooting case, in which cops think 6ix9ine implicated himself on tape.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the shooting case — which has gone unsolved so far with the NYPD — is now under review with federal prosecutors, who are combing over the evidence to see if it might lead to any additional charges.
We broke the stories … police who’ve been investigating the June shooting in NYC already believe Tekashi was involved and might very well have put a bounty out on Keef’s cousin, Tadoe, as the rainbow-haired rapper seemed to say in this clip.
We’re told the video TMZ posted of Tekashi saying he’s got a “30 pack” on Tadoe, with whom he’d just gotten off the phone, is a key piece of evidence the feds are looking at. And, remember, one of the guys who police say tailed Chief Keef prior to the shooting is a “known associate” with direct ties to Tekashi.
Ya know, Tekashi can’t be happy to hear that. He’s already facing a number of racketeering charges as it is.
We reached out to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of NY … a spokesperson declined comment. The NYPD also declined to comment.
